Useful poker terms:
- PAY STATION - A player who rarely folds, thus who frequently calls better hands and loses. Almost as much fun as a LIVE ONE.
- FORCED BET - In some stud games a player may be required to make a bet to start the action on the first card. This is similar conceptually to blinds and antes, but in this case is dependent on the cards shown rather than player position. Usually the weakest hand is forced to bet.
- FREE CARD - A card dealt after all players checked in a betting round.
- MISDEAL - A hand dealt incorrectly that must be re-dealt.
- MARKED CARDS - Cards that have been (illegally) altered so that their value can be read from the back.
- RING GAME - A standard game where players can come and go as they choose. The opposite of TOURNAMENT.
